Yesterday was a big day for our project. The C-17 was able to make it through from Christchurch, bringing ARTEMIS as well as three more of our team. Justin, Britney, and I met Evan, Kristof, and Brian at the Pegasus White Ice Runway. We also stuck around to watch the ARTEMIS crate be unloaded (very exciting!), and the C-17 load up and take off back to New Zealand (very cool!).
The folks on station have been very good to our project. The cargo crews have been handling ARTEMIS with great care, and the South Pole Overland Traverse team have cleared a space in their shop where ARTEMIS is currently nice and warm while we work through weather delays affecting our bot house construction.
